Cholangiocarcinoma - Definition


Definition


Cholangiocarcinoma is a somewhat rare liver cancer that develops from the cells of the biliary vesicle (gallbladder). This type of carcinoma can obstruct the canals of the vesicle and cause a blockage of bile in the biliary passages. Its symptoms include jaundice (icterus), itching, stomach pains, stool discoloration and a darkening of the urine. Cancerous symptoms gradually appear, leading to asthenia (extreme fatigue), a loss of appetite (anorexia), and weight loss. Cholangiocarcinoma is essentially treated surgically.
